The 1965 Gillette Cup was the third Gillette Cup, an English limited overs county cricket tournament. It was held between 23 April and 4 September 1965.[1] The tournament was won by Yorkshire, following Geoff Boycott's 146 runs in the final at Lord's. Boycott's innings remains the highest ever scored in a Lord's county limited-overs final.[2]

Format[edit]

The seventeen first-class counties, were joined by five Minor Counties: Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Wiltshire. Teams who won in the first round progressed to the second round. The winners in the second round then progressed to the quarter-final stage. Winners from the quarter-finals then progressed to the semi-finals from which the winners then went on to the final at Lord's which was held on 4 September 1965.
